There’s love (and Disney magic) in the air all around Epcot for Valentine’s Day!
And, while we’ve been strolling and sipping on the Pomegranate Margarita, we spotted the sweetest signs out for the holiday!
Last year, Soarin’ Over California briefly returned to its original home at the Disneyland Resort, much to fans’ delight. While the run only lasted during the summer months (and even saw an extension to its run!), many demanded that it return once again.
The Orange County Register officially confirmed today that the attraction will make another limited return this year and we can already smell the orange groves!
Through June 30th, Soarin’ Over California has temporarily replaced Soarin’ Around the World in the Grizzly Peak area of Disney’s California Adventure. [Read more…]
Disneyland Resort guests can look forward to a limited-time return of Soarin’ Over California to Disney California Adventure next month!
From June 1 – 30, the attraction which became Soarin’ Around the World in 2016 will return to its roots as Soarin’ Over California. [Read more…]
We know that many of you planned your Disney World vacation BEFORE the Galaxy’s Edge dates were released, so we want to do our best to help you navigate and alleviate the stress of some of those crowds! If you’re a morning person then you’re in for a treat with new EXTRA Extra Magic Hours! Not sure what that means? No problemo — we’re gonna tell you all about it!
Regular Extra Magic Hours allow Disney World hotel guests to access the parks with low crowds first thing in the morning to enjoy the cooler temps, shorter lines, cool photos with fewer guests, etc. Now…you HAVE to be staying at a Disney resort in order to have access to these Extra Magic Hours. This is one of the many perks that Disney puts in place to get you to stay at one of their hotels over off-property hotels.
So, what are Extra Extra Magic Hours and why were they created? Well, Disney often has Extra Magic Hours, but these are typically just an hour or two in the morning or evening at the parks. Extra Extra Magic Hours are additional park hours that have been added for resort guests DAILY.
Our guess is that Disney has done this to try to alleviate some of the Galaxy’s Edge crowds since an insane amount of guests will be heading to the parks for the opening of the new land this fall. Galaxy’s Edge is set to open on August 29th, which is why the Extra Extra Magic Hours will be offered every day starting September 1. They will continue until November 2, 2019, at the following theme parks and times.
In 2021, Walt Disney World will turn fifty, and we can’t wait to see what kind of epic celebrations are planned for this special event! While we await the details, we thought about all the things we’d like to do at in the World before the big day — some big, some small, and most of them totally unique to the Most Magical Place on Earth!
The wind whipping through your hair as you spin as fast as you can, giggling like a kid because on the Mad Tea Party, you are one! [Read more…]
We’re SOARIN’ from coast to coast! The beloved Soarin’ attraction premiered with a brand new film, Soarin’ Around the World, in both Disneyland and Disney World recently (not to mention Shanghai Disneyland, too!).
And over in Disneyland Resort, our DFB Disneyland Correspondent Heather Sievers noticed something new-to-her when she soared once again in Disney California Adventure: Coke Freestyle Machines have been installed right near Soarin’ at Grizzly Peak Refreshments! [Read more…]
If you’ve been keeping up on all the latest food news in Walt Disney World with us here at the DFB, then you know that the latter half of May brought all kinds of additions to the Disney dining scene!
And the arrival of the summer season also brings expanded food options to feed the increasing crowds at the parks and beyond, so our tour will include all sorts of updates, changes, and additions – both big and small – as we check out What’s New around Walt Disney World! [Read more…]
Sunshine Seasons in Epcot’s The Land continually tops reader favorites lists for best quick-service eatery. Everyone seems to love this place, and I’m not arguing with them. It offers a wide variety of high-quality dishes and includes some healthier items as well. It feels more like a resort food court than anything else, and those extra options make it desirable as a quick-service spot.
Sunshine Seasons is housed on the ground floor of The Land pavilion, which is essentially a massive room with attractions shooting off in all directions, spoke-and-wheel style. The food-court style ordering area is situated in a free-form semi-circle across from the Soarin’ and Living With The Land attractions. [Read more…]
